"Never had any vandalism or harsh words, some dirty looks at gas stations though. Mostly from people within earshot that hear my conversation with another driver when I answer questions about mpg, parking, top speed, how much room inside and how much…"

"This sounds very strange and abnormal. Sounds like your car is being exposed to some toxic corrosive cloud of chemicals. I leave my 08 outdoors 24/7 in the city and am not experiencing corrosion."

Greetings back from Decatur........ Hope all is good up there.. Will probably be making another trip up there soon. But, the Smart is not a good car for us to drive up there in, so will prob. take my Civic... The expressways would scare the living daylights out of me if I drove the smart up there. LOL Are you a beer drinker?? If so, may have to try and meet up for a "few"... We like our beer--German Hefe Weizen...Have a Happy Easter.............

Hi David!

My name is natty and I see you're from Chicago (my next vacation spot) :)

anyways, I've been trying to find more participants from the windy city to take my Smart Car owner survey. This is for a marketing strategy plan that I have to do for one of my classes at Fordham University in NY. It'll only take a few minutes and my group and I would really love to hear from you. :)

Just copy and paste this link onto your browser.

Thanks so much!

PS we also like grilled food and cats. Got a insider, and a PT inside/outside cat that likes the soft furniture. And 2 Alaskan Malamutes outside as well. It is sometimes a zoo around here with all the animals--cats, fox, racoons, birds and opossums--they are gross!

Sorry for the delay, I dont check this site much. Was up your way last weekend. Do you have a white Smart? We got lost on N. Clark St. looking for the Prost bar, and seen a white Smart parked on a side road. Also seen another white one by Dublins Tavern on N. State/Rush area as well. Anyway, hope al lis good up there. (-:

LMAO! I stopped at a gas station and that's what they gave me to write on. I have seen yours every now and then when I'm in Lakeview, so I thought, what the heck, i'll write a note. I'm glad you found it under all the snow. Welcome to the site.
